The move was made for a few different reasons. One is that the studio wants to capitalize on opening against just one other movie on the 19th, Open Road Films' jOBS, instead of going against 42 and Scary Movie 5 on the 12th. The shift also gives Universal's Jurassic Park 3D, opening April 5, an extra week on the IMAX screens.
Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion as Jack Harper, one of the last men on Earth who repairs the drones that collect natural resources on the toxic planet. He must question everything he knows to be true about the planet when he encounters a crash-landed pilot (Olga Kurylenko) and the leader of a mysterious underground settlement (Morgan Freeman).
Oblivion was released April 19th, 2013 and stars Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Melissa Leo, Zoe Bell, Abigail Lowe. The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski.
